APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Desperately hunting for the next The Girl on the Train? We have just the book. Nuala Ellwood’s hotly anticipated debut is a genuinely unsettling psychological thriller. Our narrator is unstable Syrian war reporter Kate, who returns home to live with her reclusive sister Sally after the death of their mother. Kate is convinced something awful is afoot next door, but she’s also ravaged by PTSD, so we’re left to decode her hallucinations and paranoia. What comes next—including a genuinely startling twist—is challenging, suspenseful, and darkly thrilling.
War reporter Kate Rafter, the narrator of Ellwood's affecting debut, is more comfortable with mortar shells dropping in Aleppo and Fallujah than she is back in London, freshly returned from an assignment in Syria that has left her with nightmares and hallucinations. Kate got word of her mother's death too late to make the funeral, thanks to her alcoholic younger sister. She comes home to seaside Herne Bay in Kent to a house empty, except for memories of a miserable childhood with her alcoholic father, who beat her mother and blamed his wife for the death of Kate's brother. Chapters devoted to a long police interrogation of Kate for an unknown offense make it clear that her mental state is not what it should be. She becomes convinced she's seen a little boy in her garden, raising the question of whether Kate's losing touch with reality or something more sinister is happening. Ellwood portrays the horror of witnessing war in a compelling psychological thriller.
My Sister's Bones
This book brought up every emotion.
An amazing read!!!!!!
I was honestly trying to read it. Was focusing myself, thinking it might pick up in the end, after a while I gave up a deleted the whole download, even though I have paid for it. One of the worst books I read, or half a book that I read
